With vivid yellow-orange color and subtle, earthy flavor, pure turmeric is a member of the ginger family and is a common ingredient in spice blends from the Caribbean, India, Indonesia, the Middle East and North Africa.
Ground turmeric comes from the rhizome or root of the turmeric plant. If you were to dry the root and peel back the skin, you could use it as a yellow crayon. That’s how vibrant the color is! There are many varieties of turmeric. We source only Alleppey turmeric, which is the highest grade, with the brightest yellow color and deepest flavor.
